    When I was feeding my chickens today I noticed that the little guys weren't eating as much as they normally do. I was just wondering if this was normal for chickens as I'm not an especially seasoned chicken farmer yet.

    This is actually what happened to my guy, Frank. He ate less and less for a couple days until he went two days without eating at all it seemed! We'd been keeping a close eye on him and were a bit concerned, but the very next day he seemed to just snap out of it! Franks still fine and dandy!

    Sounds normal. They probably just weren't as hungry that morning.

    Your chickens probably just weren't as hungry as usual. I would be sure to keep an eye on them, though, since not eating much can be a sign of disease.
